Due Monday: (but you might want to get a head start...)
A)    TYPE 2 short answer test questions covering chapter 8. (one covering lattice energy, one covering bond enthalpy)
                Each question needs parts, including:
                        drawing the lewis structure/lattice diagram
                        calculating lattice energy/bond enthalpy,
                        explain the trends of bond enthalpy or lattice energy/ predict the trend
B)    Write a short answer problem that asks you to draw out a lewis diagram that contains a molecule with resonance (do not use carbonate or nitrate, we did those in class) You can use sulfate or phosphate.

Answer all of your questions on a separate piece of paper.
